    Quite a tasty selection of Tapas with a extensive wine selection. The chorizo, calamari and fish croquettes were highlights for me. The Viognier by the glass was fantastic also.

    3 course lunch for $15 is the best deal in all of Santa Monica. And the food is amazing!

    Very tasty delectable choices to eat from the brunch menu as well as the regular dinner menu. A tad pricey for the small portions that they offer

    I was waiting for a solo table at the Oysterette around the corner, and since that was taking awhile I found Bar Pinxto. I love tapas so was happy to find it. Delightful. Nice service too.
